DateOct 9, 2009
Tony-winning musical Avenue Q is back! The musical, which vacated its Broadway home in September, plays its first performance just a few blocks down the road at New World Stages.
A musical about a group of 20-something people and puppets who live as neighbors in a gentrifying street in NYC, Avenue Q got its start off-Broadway, at the Vineyard Theatre in March 2003. It moved to the Golden Theatre four months later, becoming an audience and critical favorite, and won three 2004 Tony Awards including Best Musical. Avenue Q ran for 2,534 performances at the Golden Theatre, becoming the 20th longest-running show in Broadway history.
